"They Say It Only Takes a Minute To Find Someone Special, an Hour To Appreciate Them, a Day To Love Them, But yet an Entire Life time to Forget Them."

My daughter's father died in a motorcycle accident on sunday. I have mixed feelings about his death. I hurt for my child, I feel her pain. What is worse is that his family has decided not to add my daughter's name in his obituary( he was mad at me for breaking up with him,because he cheated on me when I was pregnant). I don't know what to tell my daughter,she didn't really get to know her father,he moved to Alabama when she was 2 years old,she was too young to remember him,but she loves him because he was her father. She couldn't wait for the day to actually go and meet her father. Now all she'll ever have is an outdated picture of him and knowledge of the accident that claimed his life.

If you love someone...man ,woman,or child...Don't let time,argument,stubborness,ego, etc., separate you from your chance to know that person,and tell them how you feel. All my daughter wanted was to hear her father say "I love you."Now all she'll ever have from him is silence.

Sounds like he was not much of a father; he was a motorcyclist and he thought more of his biking and being with his new family than you or your kids. The Lord has a way of dealing with people who think only of themselves! Your daughter is probably better off without him!

we split from our partners thats an adult deal but our children have no say in this. we all take sides and oaths of loyalty in love and life. quite often its the gran parents and children that are the victims. but children soon heal and understand more than we give them credit for so dont worry to much. time heals talk to her about the good times you have had and show her some pictures she will soon make her own mind about her dad.

i don't know who you think your talking about but let me tell you something my husbands children know who he is and he loved all of them his six kids were named in his obituary, this women who's child she claims is my husbands should be on the montel williams show for bringing every man she has slept with in the past few months oh by the way there were many, the father listed on this childs birth certificate was not my husband, and he was not her father, before you reply to things why don't you check your facts, there is nothing my husband wouldnt do for his biological children. my husband was alot of things a dead beat dad wasn't one of them. next time keep your comments to yourself!!!!!!!!!!

why don't you get a life. if you wanted jimmy to be the daddy so bad why did you put another father on the birth certificate, your nothing but a no good hooker the only difference is you don't get paid, i call that cheap. all his kids have his last name, that should tell you something. leave well enough alone karen, he didn't want you, he didn't want someone elses kid. move on with your pitiful life!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to let you know that since you insist that your daughter belonged to my son, I am going to a lawyer and seek custody. If your so sure that Jimmy was her father then he would want her with his family. So you can exect to hear from my lawyer very soon. But how is Charlie going to feel about it? Since he's listed as her father. I would also like to tell everyone who has an opinion of what kind of person my son was, that you were sleeping with his father since he didn't want you. I told you this was a war you didn't want, he's not here to fight for himself so I will do it for him.

i find humor in all of your immature comments. while i mourn the loss of the father my daughter will never get to know,you all have nothing better to do than call me names.how pitiful! and debra, you threaten custody as you do with all of your grandchildren,unless your calling children services with your lies. you were the one that said there was no denying that my daughter belonged to jimmy.she called him daddy,remember? thats why danielle had to be brought upstairs , so she wouldnt hear my daughter call him daddy. i am tired of all of your lies,all of you are unrealistic. and debra,where is that lawyer,the threat you made was in January..its now November...hmmmmm? i'm waiting!
jimmy(God Rest his soul) denied every child when he didnt want the responsibilty...I remember the dna tests that had to be done.
oh and p.s. Debra as I recall,your nickname was Doorknob..cause ever body had a turn!and yes i put charlie on my daughters birth certificate.i did it because i knew jimmy wouldnt be there for my child.
you named charles youse as jimmy's father in his obituary,there is a different man's name on jimmys birth certificate..warren something...but jimmys real father was rocky lazier...so you need to be quiet!
call a lawyer,I have been waiting.
and danielle nothing personal,but how could you start sleeping with jimmys best friend and move him in immediately following jimmy's death.tsk tsk tsk, you all should be ashamed of yourselves. i am embarrassed that my daughter is related to all of you. have a nice life!!! xoxoxox

my daughter would have had jimmys last name,in fact jimmy was upset that he wasnt notified to come to the hospital for her birth. and besides jimmy was cheating on me with amy. and debra should remember that amy threatened that jimmy couldnt be apart of samantha's life if he was with another girl(me). so i broke up with jimmy because i didnt want him to lose out on a child. but jimmy kept persuing me. and he also knew that when we met that charlie was in prison. charlie was locked up from dec.1991 to jan 1993. i got pregnant on keiths birthday in oct of 1992,my daughter was born 7/31/93. jimmy had me,amy,and roberta all pregnant at the same time. samantha and scott were born in dec and my daughter was born 7 months later. and you know what...i dont know why i am even bothering explaining this to you. debbie even said my daughter fell out of jimmys butt. and the day i told you the truth and you were packing to leave,debbie drove me to charlies house and asked me why i told you the truth. that i shouldve kept my mouth shut. i told her i was tired of lieing for jimmy,and she said she understood. so there it is in a nutshell. you dont know everything that went on,the whole family keeps secrets and dance around people.

jimmy wanted me a whole lot when we all lived on oliver avenue,the nights danielle didnt sleep over. dont you remember me and jimmy being nervous because we thought he had gotten me pregnant again.
and why on earth would i sleep with jimmys father?besides you dont even know who jimmy's father is.
this is so sad that you all stoop to these levels but i wouldnt expect anything else from a family like yours.hahahahahahaha! except keith...he's normal.

karen told me to come over here and take a look at all your pathetic comments. i find this all funny. i remember when i got out of prison and found out karen was a few months pregnant. i was pissed,especially knowing who she was pregnant by. i also remember jimmy and walt showing up at karens friends house and jimmy crying in the bathroom about how much he loved her and wanted the baby. it made me sick. jimmy never took care of any of his other kids. there is something that i did ask karen to do that i am glad never happened,in my own selfishness i asked her to have an abortion. she refused,we fought and she left me.
i love lauren with all my heart and i loved her and karen enough to sign the birth certificate. i'll never regret that decision. i am her father but she has always been told that her blood father was james ogden.

First of all I would like to introduce myself...I am someone who has Karen since she was young...we grew up together. Karen has been one of my dearest and most honest friends I have ever known.
Karen is not a slut or whatever you "ladies" and I use this term loosely as you both show little respect here to your husband/son.
Karen came here to show respect to honor this "man" who fathered how many children?
I am not in any way taking away from honor or respect but let me add this...Karen and her children have been through enough pain and heartache and you "ladies" to step outside yourselves and look within.
Would your son/husband be proud of your behaviour on here? Are you bringing him respect and honor with your words?
Now I also know Charlie for quite some time as does my hubby who literally watched Karen grow up as an infant into the beautiful woman she is today...and what Charlie did was honorable for Karen and her child (your step child/grand child). You want to torture this poor innocent soul of a child once more now to suddenly enter her life to disrupt it and bring more pain?
Shame on you!!!!

I pity you ladies for behaving in such a manner.

and the one called Jerry Springer shame on you for getting a hardon reading this....

I hope that you ladies someday find the peace and respect that both Karen and Charlie have found enough to write this..

Love and peace to all.

Karen & Charlie hold tight don't let these people do this to you...walk away now with your heads held high as you did the right thing and honorable thing for the sake of a child.

Blessings
Karen

I reread all my comments and discovered that I allowed myself to regress to the same immaturity as others on here. I apologize for that. That is not who I am. I accept responsibility for my bad behavior. We are not even in the same league,I have always realized that. You all prefer threats,disrespect,lies,and chaos. That is not, nor has ever been how I have ever lived my life. What I am sure of is the parentage of my daughter. And I thank Jimmy for the beautiful daughter he gave me. I will always have that piece of him forever.
I also want to make it clear that I have remained silent since January,it is your quarry that wishes to continue on with degrading insults. I choose to no longer be a part of that. My Blessings to you and I hope you find a better path in life that isnt so hurtful, demeaning,or embarrassing.
I walk in love and light,if you choose the darkness,than that is all you will have,my pity to you then. Peace to all of your souls!

My only comment and not that it is a comment is. Did this woman ever get charged with his death. I am not getting involved with anything else you people are talking about not my bussiness.

U should be ashamed of yourself. That's disgusting!!! Sleeping with his best friend among others so soon after his death. Do you know how to "Mourn" your husband? It's not supposed to be on your back!!! Sick!

It sounds like there are a bunch of women who are angry with their deceased family member and take their aggression out on Karen. Especially since I notice, the dates of the postings are MONTHS in between. Why should Karen have to explain her self to what sounds like a bunch of old whores babbling about a load of crap that has nothing to do with them? I have also noticed that not one of them reiterated about their actions, but only about the fact that Karen insists that her daughter is an Ogden. I just hope that the bestfriend of Jimmy (the one who slept with his wife) is named Charlie.

Nah...."best friend" is Donnie. Still totally disgusting. If I were Karen I would ignore these nasty women. She knows who the father is to her child........leave it at that. All of them are just hateful women wanting to bad mouth others. Danielle has no right to act the way she does...we all know about her past. She is definately no saint. Leave Jimmy alone now, he's been gone for almost a year. We all miss him very much but enough is enough. He was a wonderful person to be around. Just remember him with a smile and let him rest. I miss you very much Jimmy and always will. See you someday.......xoxo

Well, she's being charged but it's still not long enough------1-5 years? Doesn't seem right. Seems like a slap on the wrist for taking someones life. Yeah she may be upset but she needs to remember the lives she ruined when she made that ridiculous decision on the highway..........so many people are still grieving and hurting inside and will be for a long time.
